Art has had a powerful impact on many of its viewers.
In the mid to late 1900s, it was used to illustrate events and opinions.
An upcoming event hosted by The Cold War Museum will focus on the role art played during the war.
Julia Bailey, curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, will present “Art of the Cold War: Diplomacy, Propaganda and Resistance” on September 2.
During the war, Soviet and American art was presented around the world, according to a release. It was used to build support and shape how civilians viewed countries involved in the historic event.
Some artists who opposed the Cold War focused on negative parts of the conflict.
Bailey’s talk will begin at 1 p.m. at the Old Bust Head Brewing Company in Warrenton.
Tickets for the event cost $25, which covers the presentation, a drink and a $10 donation to the museum. They will be $35 at the door.
More information about the event and tickets are available online.
